KHARTOUM, Sudan — The chief of the European Union's vote monitoring team said Saturday that Sudan's elections failed to meet international standards.

Veronique de Keyser, who headed a 130-member team, said names were missing from voter registries, election resources were not evenly spread to all parts of the vast country and there were cases of voter intimidation.

The five days of voting, which ended Thursday, were the first multiparty presidential, parliamentary and local elections in 24 years.

The EU mission concluded that key aspects of the election process were undermined.
